p.3 Canadian Navigation Company - The steamers of the Royal Mail Through Line (Canadian Navigation Company) now run all the Rapids of the St. Lawrence by daylight, so that passengers leaving Kingston at 5:30 a.m. daily, Sundays excepted, are afforded a splendid view of the delighful scenery of the Thousand Islands, etc. Every morning we learn that these steamers carry a large number of passengers, many of whom are Americans, on their way to watering places and cities in the east. For the past ten days numerous western people have passed down, en route to Boston, intending to be present at the great jubilee, soon to take place there.
